Setting up a dynamic DNS service part 2: dhcpd

"Again, this setup is based on a CentOS 5.3 configuration, but with perhaps minor path changes, it will work on any Linux distribution. As well, in our previous example, we used the home network domain name “home.lan” and the IP address network 192.168.10.0.

"The dhcpd configuration file is typically /etc/dhcpd.conf. This file provides all the runtime options to dhcpd, allows you to configure different options for different subnets, and allows you to assign static IP addresses based on the requesting system’s MAC address. Configuring dhcpd fully is beyond the scope of this tip, so we will concentrate primarily on the dynamic DNS related pieces."
